The Amber Spyglass | Philip Pullman
post image

I'm combining my #BookReport and #WeeklyForecast:

This week I finished Laudato Si as planned and made progress on both Lab Girl and The Amber Spyglass. Even though #NFNov is ending, I will proceed as planned with Priestdaddy after I (hopefully) finish both Lab Girl and The Amber Spyglass this coming week! 😊


Cinfhen I wish every month was #NF themed!!!! I find as I get older fiction novels don‘t satisfy the way NF does (at least for me) 2w
Caterina @Cinfhen I adore most genres, particularly gorgeous literary fiction - but since I'm reading so much NF for my Master's right now, I find that I mostly only want to read memoirs and no other NF on top of my assigned books! I need that fiction break 😂🙈 2w

Posting my #BookReport a day early
Houseguests = No Litsying
I‘ll try to respond to all posts but it might be sporadic

I finished 2 books - both were great
Making progress with my audio - Michelle Obama needs a podcast her voice is soothing
Read about 5 chapters of my #NetGalley #Arc - #NF #Appalachia ~ enjoying
Did not read a single word from my 2 NF print books 🙈

Can‘t wait to see what you‘re reading
Happy Friday

📖 Finish up: The Lady and the Highwayman - I‘m loving this book; the plot and characters are wonderful 💓
📖 747: Creating the World's First Jumbo Jet and Other Adventures from a Life in Aviation - My Nonfic November pick for the “design” prompt.
📖 Station Eleven - I‘ve heard great things about this one
📖 The Beadworkers - short story collection about Native American life in the present day world.


Cinfhen Station Eleven is excellent and your #NF book sounds fascinating 4w

#BookReport #Week3
Glad I waited until end of the day because I finished a 5th book!!! Plainsong was a #OneSittingRead and 5 HEARTFELT stars
Speak No Evil - contemporary fiction/ very good I already posted reviews on other 3 books, LOVED both #NF (both audio)
Three bails this week, annoyed because I wasted 2/5 loans from Hoopla. Gods is probably great but not on audio. The Holdout is an #ARC #NetGalley 👎🏼 Just started Like Dreamers, #NF 👍🏻

erzascarletbookgasm Great week with three 5-star reads! 1mo
Cinfhen I went from being a #StarScrooge to a #StarSlut overnight @erzascarletbookgasm 1mo
TrishB Good week 👍🏻 1mo

Daisey Sounds like some awesome reads! 1mo
batsy #StarScrooge #StarSlut Too funny 😂😂 1mo

#MOvember #Frozen Another song that gives me an 👂🏼🐛🎶 After reading and LOVING Fall and Rise by Zuckoff, I immediately checked out his backlist. I borrowed this #NF audio from Hoopla but it didn‘t hold my interest 🥶🤭maybe print would be better🤔

vivastory I'm stacking Fall & Rise, but I'm going to be honest, I think I can only handle one 9/11 book per year & I met my quota already with the amazing 1mo
vivastory So it will probably be several months before I read it 1mo
Cinfhen I completely understand @vivastory but the Zuckoff book will stay with me for a very long time. For such a comprehensive piece of work it felt very intimate. I‘ve heard equally good things about 1mo

BarbaraBB I loved Madonna with dark hair. And I love this song 🖤 1mo
BarbaraBB @vivastory I got a copy of The Only Plane in the Sky for my birthday. My daughter immediately dove into it and is reading parts of it aloud. It does seem amazing and heartbreakingly intimate. 1mo
vivastory @BarbaraBB I agree about the song, I think it's one of my favorites by Madonna 1mo
HOTPock3tt Omg this song and this ALBUM!!! ♥️🙌🏽🎉 I remember when this video debuted on total request live and we were all ===>😱Amazing!! I miss this era 1mo
Cinfhen I once took my daughter to TRL, they told me I was too old and would have to wait outside @HOTPock3tt can you imagine??!? 😂😂😂of all the indignities 1mo
HOTPock3tt @Cinfhen That‘s ridiculous and sounds like discrimination! 😱 1mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen Excuse my language, but that is shitty about TRL. 1mo
Cinfhen @Bookzombie @HOTPock3tt they said they only admitted people aged 16-25!!! Total discrimination!!! And yes, very shitty 😝 1mo
HOTPock3tt Gosh well at this point I wouldn‘t be admitted either 🤣 @Cinfhen 1mo
Cinfhen Ha @HOTPock3tt we both outlasted TRL!!! 1mo
HOTPock3tt I know right!!!! 😎✌️ @Cinfhen 4w

🎧✅Dracula ~ full cast was excellent 🌟🌟🌟🌟
📖✅Monster of Florence ~ 🌟🌟🌟🌟#NF #TrueCrime
📖🚫Lilli De Jong - bailed 🙈- more me than book
📖Floating Feldman‘s- still really enjoying
🎧 🚫Member of the Family Bailed🙄not what I was hoping for/ Narrator was terrible
🎧In Pieces - #NF Only 2 hours into Sally Field‘s memoir & it‘s shaping up to be pretty explosive 🧨 She‘s a fantastic writer & her story is very powerful 👇🏽

Cinfhen ADD ON
📖✅Men We Reap ~ #NF well written but a little sterile- wasn‘t a fan of the book‘s structure. Prefer JW fiction this was only a so-so

TrishB Good week 👍🏻 1mo
Megabooks Glad to see this is good. Interested in your final thoughts 1mo

Sace @Cinfhen I remember having to adjust to the structure as well. I'm glad I read a physical copy so I could easily go back and forth and flip through when I needed too. 1mo
Reviewsbylola I will say LDJ is not a quick or easy read. I read it on vacation and I wish I had read it at a different time. 1mo
Cinfhen I‘m LOVING the Feldman‘s @Megabooks it reminds me a lot of 1mo
Cinfhen I definitely had a good week @TrishB and stayed pretty much on forecast 🧡Men We Reap was an impromptu BuddyRead with @Hooked_on_books 1mo
Cinfhen I found Lilli to be a little overwrought and trite @Reviewsbylola but I think I had too many other books in progress and Lilli was just the least interesting 😣 1mo
BarbaraBB Great overview! 1mo
valeriegeary 👏👏👏 1mo
Centique Just on your note about a terrible narrator - how about we lock Stephen Fry in a room and make him narrate ALL the books ?😂😂 1mo
Cinfhen OMG!! Yessssss to Stephen Fry and Dion Graham @Centique or Jason Reynolds 1mo
